We did it, KISS Army! KISS has finally been voted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Also voted in this year were Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel, Nirvana, Hall & Oates and Cat Stevens.
According to Rolling Stone magazine, the induction ceremony will be held at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on April 10th, 2014. The general public will be able to attend the event in New York City. Tickets go on sale in January; HBO will air the event in May.
KISS have been eligible for the last 15 years, but didn't get the nod until now. "The Kiss Army has descended on Cleveland in recent years," says Rock and Roll Hall of Fame President and CEO Joel Peresman. "And we've gotten thousands of letters. They also did extremely well in the public vote." (In 2012, the band joked to RS, "We've been thinking about it and the answer is simply, 'We'll just buy it and fire everybody.'")
Congratulations, KISS and The KISS Army!
